Mr. Spade, you don’t speak for me. You don’t represent me. You don’t hold the marching orders for what trans people should and should not care about. How dare you think that just because I am trans and Chelsea Manning is trans I should agree with her actions. This is an affront to the idea that trans people are unique individuals with their own politics, values, and beliefs. This whole thing strikes me as a “you aren’t a real trans advocate or even trans really if you don’t think like I do,” tirade.
